Yesterday we celebrated six trips around the sun for my little man. Yes, six trips! I can't believe it. His actual birthday is not til next week, but my parents are heading south today for a month, so we decided to celebrate before they left.
As with previous years, we celebrated with the people who filled our home with love on the day Reece was born, my parents and Reece's God parents. We continued our tradition of meeting at a trail for a hike, and then headed back to our home for a birthday gathering and lunch. As lunch cooked, Reece was happily opening a few gifts, marveling at the wonderful gifts chosen just for him. We enjoyed our meal, and then I shared the birthday story, and memories from the last six years, while lighting the birthday ring. Dessert followed, apple crisp and ice cream, as requested by my little man.
It was a simple birthday celebration, one that fits perfectly with this slow, simple path we are trying to walk.
